A brilliant dissection and reconstruction of the three major faith-based systems of belief in the world today--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam–by one of the world’s most articulate philosophers, Slavoj Zizek, in conversation with fellow Slovenian philosopher and priest Boris Gunjévic.
God in Pain: Inversions of Apocalypse shows how each of the world’s major faith-based systems of thought understand humanity and divinity--and how the differences between the faiths may be far stranger than they may at first seem. Publishers Weekly has called Zizek “One of the few living writers to combine theoretical rigor with compulsive readability.” And none other than Terry Eagleton has described him as “that rare breed of writer--one who is both lucid and esoteric.”
“The most dangerous philosopher in the West.” -Adam Kirsch, New Review
“Zizek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is the master of
counterintuitive observation.” -The New Yorker
